In this episode, Polly talks about her quest which led her to campaign for the international law of ecocide. She calls this “the missing law of our time”. It’s an inspiring journey, leaving the “hamster wheel” of criminal law to represent a new client; the earth. Listen to how she conquers fear and doubts of “I can’t make a difference”, the importance of sharing overwhelm with others and why it is unreasonable people who change the world. She even has to intervene to stop a crime of ecocide happening in her own back garden!
